King James Bible
Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
American Standard Version
That forsaketh the friend of her youth, And forgetteth the covenant of her God:
Young's Literal Translation
Who is forsaking the guide of her youth, And the covenant of her God hath forgotten.
Proverbs 2:17 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Which forsaketh the guide of her youth - Leaves her father's house and instructions, and abandons herself to the public.
The covenant of her God - Renounces the true religion, and mixes with idolaters; for among them prostitution was enormous. Or by the covenant may be meant the matrimonial contract, which is a covenant made in the presence of God between the contracting parties, in which they bind themselves to be faithful to each other.
